Re: sold the jeep.. whats next?

wow i didnt know the ctsv would be that cheap. i might look into that. and i love the bmw 3 series. the sti is sweet too and ive also considered an evo, but they're both kinda rice-burner-ish. thats why i like the mazdaspeed 6 cuz its awd, 2.3 turbo and has a much nicer interior than both the evo and sti. so i guess i'll keep my eye open for that ctsv too! + rep on that one

Re: sold the jeep.. whats next?

Man you're making me relive my ctsv days! lol I miss it so much but try to remind myself ill get the 09 someday... I used to take it out to a couple road courses in Dallas, lots of fun! (I was still learning in this vid, so please excuse the occasional awkward shift points/revs)

This looks like a nice one if it's a real ad. Might be far from Michigan, but if spending $200 on a plane ticket saves for a couple $1k its worth it, plus you get to take a road trip home in your new car

Re: sold the jeep.. whats next?

Audi A4 or a Passat. They run about $15k or less in the 05-06 models. Like these...

My sister has a Passat 3.6L VR6 and it's fast

Re: sold the jeep.. whats next?

Re: sold the jeep.. whats next?

well for $15k, this should do the trick

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Clean...ht_1658wt_1167

These are my favorite cars in that range, very powerful, very classy, very clean and yet they have that retro feel! If you can find a good one that had a good history, Id get it all day!

Euro Stuff:
Forget the A4, they're slow, any S4's from the mid 2ks with mid-high miles will be in your range
Benz C300s can be had any they are sexyyy but not too quick
High miles 335i could be had but they've probably been beaten up to be in your range, still hold pretty good value.


Also to check out in ricer/sport sector are:
Supra MKIV (before the 4 they were ehhh)
3000GT VR-4/Stealth TT
Nissan GTR R32/33/34 (if you can find one R34's will run more, all depends on condition though as well

American Stuff:
C5 Vette Z06 - can be had for $20k and down to $15 if you have a good eye
CTSV - older gen like already mentioned (nice car, similar to the M5 overall)


Hope that gives you some food for thought, g/l with your quest buying a new car is always a ton of fun
